Painting completely in oil. Exercise in black and white and different types of contrast.

    Lovely work! I like your take on this bust a lot, well chosen colours and striking atmosphere. I keep wondering what he’s up to next…

    Lovely work, Tim!  A very unique verison of this great bust. Lovely setup of the black and white colors and your magic that is going on indeed feels magical. Great version! I like it a lot! From my perspective the brass plinth is distractful in its color and brightness. I sometimes paint these black too to make them stand back and to provide full attention to the miniature! Keep on happy painting!

    I like that there are more and more version of this bust! Nevertheless, there are so many things I like on your piece. The colour choices and subtle transitions are done well and I like the feel of the piece being almost monochromatic, but the orb gives it the punch of colour. My favourite detail is the glowing fingers, when they come in contact with light. It looks lovely. And the fact that you did it in oils is cool, I would have never said that it was oils!

    Great figure painting all round (I love the orb in particular, and the overall lighting) and excellent use of oils at this scale
